Admission: Free
 	 Celebrate Space Day 2007 at the National Air and Space Museum on
the National Mall!	
Space Day 2007 will be another action-packed day of astronaut appearances,
hands-on activities, book signings, tours, and special stories for children,
all surrounded by the world's most famous space artifacts.

Especially exciting will be a sneak peek at the much-anticipated successor
to the space shuttle, the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle. This Lockheed
Martin-designed spacecraft of the future will be on view in the shadow of
one of the most historic spacecraft of the past - the Apollo 11 command
module, Columbia.

Have a blast learning how you can build your own model rocket with the
Northern Virginia Association of Rocketry. The group will bring their own
home-built rockets for you to see and lots of information on building a
flyable rocket.

Local robotics teams will show off their latest creations with a robot
petting zoo. The teams will demonstrate their expertise in building and
running robots for competition.

Participating organizations include Lockheed Martin, NASA, and AMSAT-Radio
Amateur Satellite Corporation.

 	 Space Day 2007 at the National Air and Space Museum is made
possible by the generous support of Lockheed Martin.
